    I listed this awhile back in the Belgian section. To me the pattern looks belgian, but someone said the wings are Rhodesian. Is it a private purchase piece or a fashion piece?
    Thanks,
    Bob

    Hi I dont know if this was used in Rhodesia personally I dont think so, I know there are rumors of Belgain smocks used during the bush war if there was I dont think that it was a common thing, the camo is deffo Belgian brush stroke it may be zeltsbann fabric, I have spoken to my wife (yes Easy Gee the ball and chain collects Air Force Badges) who collects Rhodesian Air Force Badges and is quite knowlageable on the subject she said that with out handling the wings she is 95% shure they are Reproduction so Im erring on it being a fasion peice, that said its a nice peice

    Thanks.
    Again, I have always felt it was some sort of fashion piece, just by the cut and how it looks.
    Plus, the wings never felt "right".
